The number of people missing from California's deadliest wildfire, the Camp Fire, has sharply dropped to 25.
The Butte County Sheriff's office was "able to clear a backlog in their investigation," agency spokeswoman Megan McMann said on Saturday.
The Camp Fire started early in the morning near the town of Paradise on Nov. 8 and spread quickly due to wind gusts of nearly 50 miles per hour. Since the blaze ignited, authorities have located more than 3,000 people who were reported as missing.
Multiple survivors have said they received no warning of the fire.
